Science Standards Face Review from Kansas School Board
06/12/2012
 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - The Kansas State Board of Education is preparing to review the first draft of proposed science standards that could renew the debate over teaching evolution.

 

The standards on the board's Tuesday afternoon agenda are being drafted by 26 states, including Kansas, along with the National Research Council. The goal is to create guidelines that can be used by all states, and Kansas is likely to consider whether to adopt them next year.

 

State Board of Education member Ken Willard, a Republican from Hutchinson, said last week he considers the initial draft problematic. That document was released in May and describes evolution as a well-established, core scientific concept.

 

Kansas has switched multiple times between standards expressing skepticism about the theory and evolution-friendly guidelines like the ones now in place.
